Older and Older (Poem)


At first it maybe dark inside

But suddenly there comes a light

And there you see a beautiful person

Holding you in her arms tight


Sooner and Sooner you start to talk

Where they become very happy

And then Later later you start to walk

Then they take you outside to see the world


As time flies by

 you’ll need to learn

Your parents send you to school

That gives you so many concerns 


Many years later

Probably 10 or 20

You need to get a job

You’ll need to earn plenty


You are now very old

You need to retire

Soon you become very sick

Burning stomach with fire


After so long 

You came to the light you had arrived

The Doctors come in by

And say you won’t be able to survive


Hours go on

Until you shut your eyes

It goes dark again

In the grave your body now lies


All those memorable things

Which happened so long ago

Now happen to be nothing

As you’ll have to go
